So some new study about high fructose corn syrup came out in the journal Obesity, and basically every word that's come out of HFCS's mouth is a lie, including "a," "the," and "is."
Interestingly named nutritionist professor Marion Nestle has the details on her blog at the Atlantic, but here it is in a nutshell:
Fructose is not sucrose, no matter what they say.
The amount of HFCS on the label has #$(*% all to do with the actual amount in the soda. Sometimes it's less, or up to 30% more.
That Mexican Coke you've been paying through the nose for at Costco because it's made with sucrose? Estupido! It's made with fructose. No word on whether the Kosher for Passover Coke is being misrepresented, too, but if it is, at least you know G-d will be keeping score for later.
